A unit of study for gifted fourth and fifth graders is described on the subject of mathematical periodicity and chaos and the underlying physical processes which produce these phenomena. Hands-on activities, data analysis tools and computer aids are used for instruction in simple periodic motion (pendulum), complex superposition of motions (vibrations), and chaotic sequences (stock prices).
